Inauguration of Club activity
Having an Art or painting club is a great way for students to be involved in art throughout the year. When teacher’s time with students are limited in the classroom, this painting club can serve as a nice supplement for students who can’t get enough art. Mrs. Bhavani who is an Art Educator has taught various aspects of painting in the form of sceneries to the students – like hill side, boating, night view etc. Her teachings were well received by the students. They participated actively and happily. Students were monitored and guided by the teachers.
Craft club is one of the interesting clubs. It gives more opportunities and freedom to try new things with students to develop their creativity. The teacher shows a sample of the craft work and asks the students to do their own with innovative ideas. Students were taught to make fish scales using round bindhies, greeting card with chart and quilling papers, using sequence they made beautiful designs.
